(CNN) A former gymnastics coach was arrested in Las Vegas and faces 14 counts of lewdness with a child under age 14, authorities said

Terry Gray, 52, was a coach at a gym in the city from 2009 to 2015, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

Court records show that the alleged incidents occurred between 2007 and 2013. CNN has reached out to his attorney.

Gray also coached at gyms in Cincinnati and Southern California, according to multiple reports. None of these current charges are related to those gyms.

1. The sport of gymnastics

Seems to be a magnet for perverts.

2. Unfortunately, ever since it developed the model...

...of barely-pubescent girls under the iron rule of older male coaches (a model which seemed to develop back in the '70s, when you were suddenly "over-the-hill" once you turned 16), it would seem to be just the sort of environment that would attract that type.

3. If you can stomach it, I recommend "Athlete A" on Netflix.

It’s difficult to watch as it is both sickening and infuriating but it goes into great detail explaining how we adopted the “Easten European” communist model after Nadia Comaneci in women’s gymnastics. It’s disgusting but incredibly informative. My heart goes out to these girls and young women for their suffering.

4. +1000

That and the Epstein documentary on Netflix have still left me in a persistent state of blood rage.

HBO had a really good documentary on the gymnasts, as well (At the Heart of Gold). It focuses more on the victims themselves and provides more detail on the history of the slimeball doctor. Either or both of these documentaries are must viewing, and they will convince you that USA Gymnastics is an organization that needs to be burned to the ground.
